Lincoln's Last Bowel Movement

Gettysburg, Pennsylvania

Last Bowel Movement.

Loopiest Lincoln Landmarks.

We wouldn't have believed this artifact existed if we hadn't seen it with our own eyes at the Gettysburg Dime Museum. The crusty, blackened poop is framed with a signed testimonial to its authenticity, as well as a typewritten rebuttal that dismisses this "human coprolite" as the work of a "fecal forger." Visitors are encouraged to reach their own conclusions.

Museum curator Mark Kosh told us that Lincoln was known for his sense of humor, and that if he could return to Gettysburg he would probably visit the Dime Museum and enjoy its most notorious exhibit.
